The Social Research Center offers a multitude of reputable and specialized training workshops focusing on research, analytical skills in social science as well as issues of human development and health promotion efforts and policies.
The SRC has been annually conducting two regional training workshops for more than a decade. The first focuses on research and analytical skills in social sciences and the second on strategies for health improvements.
The three-month course on Social Science Research Methods addresses development concerns in the Arab region. It combines quantitative, qualitative and evaluation research. It is well recognized for its teaching approach, paying special attention to practical aspects and hands-on applications. This course has developed its own teaching materials.
The three-week course on health strategies targets health ministries and development actors and provides a critical engagement with recent international discourses and paradigms.
The SRC contributes to capacity building not only by conducting the above-mentioned training courses, but also by engaging student and graduate student research assistants, who get practical and substantive research training by working on research projects under the supervision of one or more of the SRC’s research faculty.
